Refugee Assistance

Contemporary Town Seal

Dear Community Members, 

On behalf of the Town of Middleborough, I would like to extend my gratitude to the efforts being made to support our newest community members. I am pleased to report that our families are acclimating to our town, children are starting school, and all family needs are being met. Across our departments and citizens, there is visible strength and compassion in your efforts to support our community members.

There are a number of ways you can help:

  1. The Town Manager’s Office is receiving only cash/check donations to support the families. Feel free to give a financial donation in any amount. All donations will go directly to the families and their needs.
  2. We are in desperate need to have volunteers who speak Haitian Creole. Volunteers who speak Spanish or Portuguese may also be helpful. These volunteers will serve as hands-on interpreters or translators.  Follow this link to complete the webform with the language you speak and your availability. We will be setting up times for interpreters to sit down with each family to find out their needs.
  3. As of now, donations for food, clothing, diapers, formula and water are at capacity.
  4. Future food donations are being coordinated by the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry, located at 53 Oak Street, Middleboro, on Tuesday and Friday mornings between 7:30 AM and 10:00 AM. Also, many families have expressed a special desire for guava juice, brushes/combs, men’s and women’s deodorant, shaving cream and razors.
  5. Future clothing donations are being coordinated by Walt’s Mobile Closet and the Salvation Army, both of which are able to bring clothes that meet people’s direct needs.  Walt’s Mobile Closet receives donations at Gleason Family YMCA (33 Charge Pond Rd, Wareham), the Marion Council on Aging (465 Mill St, Marion), and New Again/Refillable (inside the store, 160 North Main Street, Carver). The Salvation Army has a donation bin at the Middleborough Transfer Station at 207 Plympton Street. St. Vincent de Paul also receives clothing donations at their Thrift Store, located at 18 Canton Street, Stoughton.
  6. Please complete the webform linked to the website banner, if you would like to be alerted to future volunteer opportunities.

Thank you again for your interest and support!
